-      Talk about Alex here.
+        Alex wrote the LDAPd pure Java LDAP server and founded the LDAPd Group.
+        He eventually disolved the LDAPd Group and proposed and founded the 
+        Directory Project at Apache which absorbed the code base to the LDAPd 
+        Directory Server.
       </p>
+      
+      <subsection name="Some Background">
+        <p> 
+          As an enterprise architect and developer Alex had searched for a way 
+          to consolidate common data within an infrastructure into one single 
+          location to centralize it's management and allow for shared access.  
+          Such a centralized database would make enterprise integration of 
+          several applications and processes depending on this common 
+          information that much easier without duplication and consistancy 
+          issues.
+        </p>
+        
+        <p>
+          Alex first experimented with a centralized database to initially store
+          user accounts, passwords and authorization profiles for various
+          applications and resources within an enterprise.   Unfortunatly the 
+          use of an RDBMS was inhibiting.  It was a single point of failure 
+          which wound up becoming a bottle neck.  Furthermore the RDBMS was
+          not very conducive toward managing heirarchical data and delegating
+          control over it.  A new storage and access paradigm was required and
+          that's when Alex encountered the directory.
+        </p>
+        
+        <p>
+          After studying up on X.500 and LDAP Alex decided to design corporate
+          directories to facilitate in enterprise application integration and
+          the realization of workflows across these systems.  His experience 
+          lead to encounters with various directory servers which disappointed
+          him.  The directory servers encountered were a decade away from being
+          as robust as the RDBMS is for application developement.  Some of the 
+          rich features in the RDBMS have yet to be introduced into the world 
+          of the directory server or require a massive workaround to implement.
+          Things like stored procedures and triggers were most high on that 
+          list.
+        </p>
+        
+        <p>
+          Finally on October 16th 2002 Alex decided to write his own LDAP server
+          which had support for triggers and stored procedures.  On this day he 
+          registered a Sourceforge project called LDAPd and began building an
+          LDAP server.  He also founded the LDAPd Group which worked on the 
+          LDAPd server.  Eventually Jeff Machols, Robb Penoyer, Wes McKean and 
+          others joined the project.  Before a year the server had 3 releases at
+          sourceforge and an invitation was made by the Avalon team to have the 
+          LDAPd project move to Apache.   A proposal was written and submitted 
+          for the Apache Directory Project on September 3rd 2003.  The proposal 
+          was accepted by the ASF into the Apache incubator on October 30th 
+          2003.
+        </p>
+        
+        <p>
+          The dream of a robust pure Java LDAP server will be realized before 
+          exiting the incubator.  Most importantly the server will be free and 
+          supported by a healthy community of developers here at the ASF.
